graphic upgrade: complains about not enough diskspace without any reason

Graphic upgrade: florence beta2 -> rc1 (I know unsupported, but that's not
/ 200 Mb (Can't remeber exactly but somewhere above this)
/home 1000 Mb
-Upgrade fails with not enough disk space on /
-make some space on /
-continue with upgrade
-restore cleaned up files
-still 116 Mb free on /
-installer very likely place the installer image in /, while it should have
put it in /home
Thanks for the report we will investigate.
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold
change to vc2 and ls /mnt/sysimage/rhinstall-stage2.img and ls
it should place it on the partition with the most free space.
Well, I've already done the upgrade, so should I just upgrade again to the same
Also when should I do that (where in the install process?)
yes, I suppose upgrade again. You would need to go to Ctrl+Alt+F2 during
Ehm, it never gets to package installation, or are you suggesting:
-make enough space on / for things to work
-do the upgrade to the same version
-check at ctrl + alt + F2 ?
just after it does the "transferring install image" part, switch and do the ls.
Were you able to get the information we requested? We are getting near the
point we cannot fix bugs and would like to consider your report fully.
Nope, I'll try yo get the info later today
I just checked this, and the install image ends up in /home so thats good, but
that means that the space calculation for / was over 100 megs off *, is it very
conservative and / or is some temp space needed for other reasons?
* I have about 100 megs free on / after the upgrade but it complained it needed
8 megs more.
Anyways I think you can close this.
I'll pass the question of space calculation on to Matt.
It's fairly conservative, but I've never seen it 100 mb off.
